    Flex Flyte L9 hose for intakes

    Many of us have or are using kanaflex for their intake set ups.
    Many are surprised that even though it is listed as a smooth bore it really isn't.

    I am working at Evergreen Solar where we are opening up a brand new facilty to will be making a 200w solar panel just about every minute. There is a lot of cool stuff going in. While installing the tools I will be working on this hose was installed for ventalation.

    Having contacted one rep he redirected the inquiry to another. I just havent had time to follow up.

    Attached is some pictures of a 10 inch section of this hose.

    Here is a link to the hose in the pictures

    another link to several other hoses

    If you can provide any amplifying info on if the L9 hose work be a viable option for an intake (4 inch of course) it would be greatly appreciated.

    It looks pretty stout for its weight too. Looks like a good product to try.

    Yeah, I agree on it may be a good hose. Are there a variety of colors? I just hate to put a bright orange hose in a white/blue ski.

    Yes, its a very good hose. But i thing you will become a problem after the SC to take the "2" corners.

    Will this hose require a couple 90's from siliconintakes?

    it will make the bend BUT 2 90s would be a hell of a lot better and it would make life easier if the hose run was somewhat sectional.

    I looked at the details on that duct, along with other uses...It says brake duct, etc. This lead me to google search "brake ducts" etc. There is a lot of duct out there.
